Ohtani Shohei (LA Angels) is also human. He destroyed two chances and provided an excuse for a come-from-behind defeat.
The Angels lost 4-6 in the 2023 Major League Baseball game held at Angel Stadium in Los Angeles, USA on the 11th (Korean time).
Ohtani started as the designated hitter three times. He went 0-for-3 with one walk and struck out two. Ohtani bowed his head as he recorded three left bases.
Ohtani missed the opportunity that came from the first episode. He struck out three pitches with one out and first base. The slider that fell to the floor completely took away the timing. His butt fell back and he spun the bat.
However, the Angels continued their offense with Hunter Renfro’s hit and Brandon Drury’s walk. With the bases loaded with 2 out, Luis Renhipo exploded a timely hit with 2 RBIs.
Ohtani was able to make up for the earlier strikeout in the bottom of the second inning, when he was being chased 2-1.
With one out and first base, Taylor Ward got a hit and set the table for first and second base. Mike Trout struck out on a swing. As he became 2nd, 1st and 2nd base, Ohtani’s responsibility increased.
However, Ohtani retreated with a ground ball to first base. He put his hand on the sinker outside his body strike zone.
The Angels ran away with a score of 4-1 in the bottom of the third, but eventually tied the game at 4-4 in the top of the fourth. Even in the top of the 5th inning, the run continued and the game turned 4-5. An extra point was lost in the top of the 7th inning.
Ohtani appeared as the lead batter in the bottom of the 7th inning, trailing 4-6. Getting on base was the most important situation. As in the first inning, Ohtani struck out again with three strikes. He got stuck on a four-seam fastball that hit the low course inside the third pitch on the second strike.
Ohtani’s next chance never came.
In the bottom of the ninth inning, the batting order starting with the ninth batter, there was a glimmer of hope. Jake Lam and Taylor Ward were out in turn.
Trout came out in a situation where there were no runners in the second company. If Trout could just connect to Ohtani, he could have dreamed of a one-shot tie. 토스카지노
But Trout didn’t help either. With 2 strikes and 2 balls, Trout’s bat only cut through the air. Ohtani, who was waiting at bat, smacked his lips.
